THE First Alicante Gastro Festival will hit the city from November 18 to 24 and is bound to make it the centre of Mediterranean cuisine with an incredible range of events planned. 

Organised by the Council and the Alicante Restaurant Association (ARA), the event will include children’s workshops, demonstrations from international chefs, 20 gastronomic activities, and plenty of discussion about food and tourism.
